“So Jesus said to the twelve, “Do you want to go away as well?” Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life…” John 6:67-68
God’s greatest gift to mankind is His Word. They are life. In the trenches of this fallen world, we hold onto it like a soldier clutches a letter from home. Until we see Him face to face, His Word is His revelation to us.
“Some people like to read so many [Bible] chapters every day. I would not dissuade them from the practice, but I would rather lay my soul asoak in half a dozen verses all day than rinse my hand in several chapters. Oh, to be bathed in a text of Scripture, and to let it be sucked up in your very soul, till it saturates your heart!” –Charles Haddon Spurgeon
